A new twist on an old tradition; for the 2009 Holiday Concert, the DSO is joined by the Naperville Men's Glee Club, an acclaimed ensemble of accomplished local singers that celbrated its 20th anniversary in 2008. The "fusion format" of this year's program features the NMGC's traditional Advent Opening, the DSO's presentation of Tchaikovsky's charming Symphony No. 1 in G minor, "Winter Dreams", and a joining of forces for Randol Alan Bass's A Feast of Carols and other lush arrangements of familiar holiday tunes. DSO Music Director Barbara Schubert and NMGC Conductor Bonnie Klee Roberts share the podium in this family-friendly holiday concert. Wentz Concert Hall, Naperville, Illinois. 13 December 2009.
